This is Michigan's first game at Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium (opened in 2009, we last played there in 2008). Anyone going?
Some, probably very few, may remember my tale of woe from the Fan Day back in August. I drove in from Iowa with my 9 and 8 year old sons; the 9 year old happens to be a huge fan of #16. We got shut out in our attempt to get in the QB autograph line, though they had a great time running around on the field and getting autographs from most of the OL and DL.
Trying to offer some modicum of hope, I suggested we try at the Minnesota game, since that's the closest Michigan plays to us this year (Lincoln wasn't going to happen and, thankfully, we didn't go). So I'm taking both of them up to Mpls for the Michigan game this Saturday. I'm wondering if there's any chance of flagging down Denard after the game to get him to sign his SI cover. Is this realistic? How long would we have to wait after the game for the team to come out? If it doesn't seem to have a likelihood of success, any other suggestions for getting him to sign the SI cover (ideally it would be personalized to him, so no worry about being an eBay whore)?
